Story

What happens when you have a bass player who decides a five-minute-long bass solo would be a good idea, and has no voice of reason (IE other band members) to tell him otherwise? Well, this. I recorded the whole thing in one long, rather quiet take. As such, it’s not quite perfect; there are a few flubs here and there, and somehow my B string went slightly out of tune in the thirty seconds or so between tuning my bass and going to record this. Oops.

Despite what it sounds like, this isn’t actually a super-progressive 200 notes a measure orgy of prog excess. It’s all a single track, with not a whole lot of chord stuff happening. I was going for more of a Marcus Miller sort of feel to this, although I don’t claim to be anywhere near that level of bassist.
